Khashoggi is enshrined as a street name in front of the Saudi Embassy in London

Amnesty International's human rights advocacy group named the road outside the Saudi embassy in London, England, as Jalan Khashoggi as a form of respect for the journalist who was killed in the Saudi consulate. The name was also a form of ridicule for the Saudi government because it was located at the Saudi embassy office.

Quoted from the page of the Independent, Saturday (3/11), the road naming movement became Khashoggi originating from America. A number of colleagues and admirers of Khashoggi made a petition calling on government officials to rename the streets of New Hampshire Avenue, the location of the Saudi embassy, ​​to be the name of the Khashoggi street.

Now the movement is spreading to various locations in the world. Amnesty hopes that the movement will take place in various road locations where the Saudi Embassy is everywhere.

"The whole world is shocked by this brutal murder and this is important so that we do not let the perpetrators walk freely without being punished," said Kate Allen, director of Amnesty International UK.

"We have to drag the perpetrators of Khashoggi's murder to court, not only who did but also who ordered, and that will happen soon," Allen added.

At the commemoration of Khashoggi's death last Monday, the head of an Islamic research institute in the United States and longtime Khashoggi friend Nihad Awad called on the bereaved to start petitions in various cities where the Saudi embassy is located.

Jamal Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, was killed and allegedly his body was mutilated when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2. Initially the Saudi government denied he was killed and said he left the consulate shortly after entering. But lately because of international pressure the Saudi recognized Khashoggi was killed.

Research: The risk of not exercising is the same as smoking and diabetes

Perhaps many have understood that not exercising can increase the likelihood of developing disease or premature aging. Underestimating the importance of exercise can indeed be harmful to health. But not many seem to know that the health risks of avoiding exercise are just as harmful as smoking.

The study showed better cardiorespiratory health closely related to longer life. Meanwhile, extreme aerobic fitness provides the greatest benefits. Especially for people over 70 years of age and people with hypertension.

The study also said, the risk posed by not exercising is equal or higher than smoking or diabetes.

"Aerobic fitness is something that most patients can control," said cardiologist Dr. Wael Jaber from the Cleveland Clinic. They also found that in exercising there was no limit to how much exercise to do.

The study was published on October 19 in the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open.

Although many studies support the importance of exercise, many people in the world do not have sufficient physical activity.

Last month, the World Health Organization (WHO) found that 1.4 billion of the world's population is not physically active. This puts them at risk for diseases such as diabetes.

Research from the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, USA found that exercise two to three days a week can minimize stiffness in medium-sized arteries.

Well, it turns out exercise is really important for health. It's good if this good habit starts immediately. No need to exercise hard to start. Walking at high speed can actually be a good start.

Fintech players need to be serious about managing a non-renewable community-based strategy

The Minister of Communication and Informatics (Menkominfo) Rudiantara said that the technology financial company (Fintech) is currently still targeting the people who actually have an account number in the bank.

Not only is it more targeted to people who are unbankable or do not have an account number.

"If I look at it, in general, those who use fintech are actually young people or anyone who has been touched by the banking system. Fintech should be able to push towards new markets or those that are unbankable with new products or existing products," explained the man familiarly called Chief RA after the discussion at the 2018 IdeaFest event, Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), Friday (26/10).

Therefore, he suggested that these fintech players immediately re-do strategies to suit the objectives of financial inclusion. So far, fintech stretching only substitutes existing markets with products that are already available.

"It means what is it? Lending. It's the same as a bank that provides loans to its customers who have an account number," he said.

As is well known, with the emergence of many fintechs today it is expected to be a solution to solve the number of unbankable people. This is because, through fintech it is expected that a wide range to remote areas will only rely on the internet. [idc]

This is a healthy reason to open the bedroom window in the morning

Opening a room window in the morning so that fresh air and sunlight can enter the room turns out to be a healthy habit. A study shows that this action can help reduce the risk of bacterial contamination.

Launching the New York Post, Sunday (10/21/2018), new studies show that if you do not open the window curtain in the morning, the possibility of falling ill can be greater.

Sunlight in the morning can kill disease-causing bacteria that live in dust. Meanwhile, darker conditions actually make them develop.

The findings, published in the Microbiome scientific journal, also warned of problems that appeared in offices without windows.

"Humans spend most of the time indoors, where exposure to dust particles that carry bacteria, including pathogens that can make us sick, cannot be avoided," said study leader Ashkaan Fahimipour.

So, buildings or houses occupied play an important role in determining one's health. "It is important to understand the features of the buildings we occupy, affect the dust ecosystem and how this can affect our health," Fahimipour said.

The team at the University of Oregon, United States, conducted research by creating eleven miniature rooms.

The rooms are identical to each other and placed at various levels of light. After 90 days, a dark room has twice the number of bacteria.

"We hope that with further understanding, we can design access to sunlight in buildings such as schools, offices, hospitals, and homes in ways that reduce the risk of infection from being transmitted by dust," Fahimipour added.

So for those of you who are accustomed to waking up in pitch black rooms, from now on try to get used to lifting the curtains and opening the windows. Although blinding to the eyes, in fact the morning sunlight does provide many benefits to our health.
